Accordingly, each party covenants and agrees that it will not, directly or indirectly, without the prior written consent of the other, use or disclose any of such confidential information; provided, however, that confidential information shall not be deemed to include information which (i) was or becomes generally available to the public other than as a result of disclosure by any party or its Affiliates or (ii) was or becomes available on a non-confidential basis from a source other than any other party, provided that such source is not known by the disclosing party to be bound by a confidentiality agreement with respect to such confidential information. Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this paragraph, any party and its Affiliates may disclose any confidential information to the extent that, in the opinion of counsel, such Person is legally compelled to do so, provided that, prior to making such disclosure, such Person advises and consults

with the other parties regarding such disclosure and provided further that such Person discloses only that portion of such confidential information as is legally required. If this Agreement is terminated without Closing, each party shall promptly return to the others all originals and copies of any confidential information it received from the others, including documents prepared by it incorporating such confidential information.
     5.2 Acquisition Proposals. From and after the Agreement Date until the earlier of the Closing Date or the termination of this Agreement, neither any Seller nor any Affiliate, officer, employee or representative of such Seller shall, directly or indirectly, (i) solicit, initiate, or knowingly encourage any Acquisition Proposal or (ii) engage in discussions or negotiations with, or disclose any nonpublic information relating to the Assets or the Stations to, any Person that is considering making or has made an Acquisition Proposal. Each Seller shall immediately cease and cause to be terminated any existing activities, discussions or negotiations with any Persons conducted heretofore with respect to any Acquisition Proposal and shall promptly request each such Person who has heretofore entered into a confidentiality agreement in connection with an Acquisition Proposal to return to such Seller all confidential information heretofore furnished to such Person by or on behalf of such Seller. If any Seller or its Affiliates shall hereafter receive any Acquisition Proposal, such Seller shall immediately communicate the terms of such proposal to Buyer. The term “Acquisition Proposal”, as used in this Section, means any offer or proposal for, or any indication of interest in, the acquisition of the Assets or the Stations of any Seller or any portion thereof effectuated directly or indirectly through a sale of assets, sale of equity interests, by merger or otherwise, other than the transactions contemplated or expressly permitted by this Agreement.
     5.3 Third Party Consents. Subject to Section 5.7 hereof, each Seller shall use commercially reasonable efforts to obtain all consents, approvals, orders, authorizations, and waivers of, and to effect all declarations, filings, and registrations with, all third parties (including Governmental Entities) that are necessary, required, or reasonably deemed by Buyer to be desirable to enable such Seller to transfer the Assets to Buyer as contemplated by this Agreement and to otherwise consummate the transactions contemplated hereby. Except as otherwise provided in Section 5.5(b)(ii) all costs and expenses of obtaining or effecting any and all of the consents, approvals, orders, authorizations, waivers, declarations, filings, and registrations referred to in this Section shall be borne by Sellers; provided, however, that Sellers shall not be required to bear the cost of negotiating any changes that Buyer may wish to have made in the terms of any agreements or authorizations for which consents to assignment are sought.
     5.4 Cooperation. Each party hereto agrees that it will not voluntarily undertake any course of action inconsistent with the provisions or intent of this Agreement and will take, or cause to be taken, all action and to do, or cause to be done, all things reasonably necessary, proper or advisable under Applicable Laws to consummate the transactions contemplated by this Agreement.

     5.5 FCC Consent.
          (a) FCC Consent. Consummation of the purchase and sale provided for herein and the performance of the obligations of Sellers and Buyer under this Agreement are subject to the condition that the FCC Consent is obtained without any condition, other than conditions imposed by the FCC in the Ordinary Course of Business, that is materially adverse to Buyer or Sellers.
          (b) Application For FCC Consent.
          (i) Sellers and Buyer agree to use commercially reasonable efforts and to cooperate with each other in seeking the FCC’s Consent through the preparation, electronic filing and prosecution of appropriate long-form applications to assign the FCC Licenses from WDLP-Sub and Robin-Sub to Buyer (the “Assignment Applications”). The Assignment Applications shall be electronically submitted to the FCC as soon as practical but in all events no later than ten (10) business days after the Agreement Date, time being of the essence (the “Application Filing Date”). Each party further agrees to prepare Assignment Application amendments, respond to oral or written inquiries from the FCC and answer pleadings whenever such documents are required by the FCC or its rules.
          (ii) Except as otherwise provided herein, each party will be solely responsible for the expenses incurred by it in the preparation, filing and prosecution of its respective portion of the Assignment Applications. Sellers and Buyer shall each be responsible for one-half of all filing fees and grant fees imposed by the FCC in connection with the Assignment Applications.
          (iii) Each party agrees to comply with any condition imposed on it by the FCC, except that no party shall be required to comply with a condition that would have a Material Adverse Effect upon it unless the condition was imposed in the Ordinary Course of Business or as the result of a circumstance which constitutes a breach by that party of any of its representations, warranties or covenants in this Agreement. Buyer and Sellers shall oppose any efforts for reconsideration or judicial review of the grant by the FCC of the Assignment Applications (but nothing in this Section shall limit any party’s right to terminate this Agreement pursuant to Section 9.1 of this Agreement).
          (c) Notice of Application. Sellers shall, at their expense, give due notice of the filing of the Assignment Applications, by such means as may be required by the rules and regulations of the FCC.
     5.6 Employee and Employee Benefit Plan Matters. Buyer is not hereby, and at no time hereafter will be, adopting, accepting, or assuming any employee benefit plan or collective bargaining agreement of any Seller relating to any of such Seller’s employees or any other agreement, trust, plan, fund or other arrangement of such Seller that provides for employee benefits or

27.


Table of Contents

perquisites (collectively, “Employment Arrangements”), and Buyer shall have no liability or obligation whatsoever under any Employment Arrangement to such Seller or to any employees of such Seller, whether or not any of such employees are offered employment by or become employees of Buyer. Buyer is not obligated to replace any of the Employment Arrangements for any employees of any Seller who become employees of Buyer, nor is Buyer obligated to provide such Persons with any similar agreements, plans, or arrangements. Any Seller may terminate the employment of any employees of such Seller’s Stations effective as of the Closing Date. Upon Closing or thereafter, Buyer may, but is not in any way obligated to, offer employment to some or all of such Seller’s employees employed at the Stations who have been so terminated by such Seller upon such terms and conditions as Buyer shall determine in its sole discretion. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, this Section 5.6 shall not be deemed to create any right or claim for the benefit of, and shall not be enforceable by, any Person who is not a party to this Agreement.
     5.7 Transfer of Certain Contracts. Each Seller agrees that between the Agreement Date and the Closing Date it will use commercially reasonable efforts to obtain or cause to be obtained the necessary consents to the transfer of each Assumed Contract which by its terms requires the consent of any other contracting party thereto (for purposes of this Section, “Consent Required Contract”), and Buyer will cooperate with such Seller in securing such consent. In the event that any Seller shall have failed prior to the Closing Date to obtain consents to the transfer of any Consent Required Contract, the terms of this Section shall govern the transfer of the benefits of each such contract. Notwithstanding any provision contained in this Agreement to the contrary, the parties hereto acknowledge and agree that at the Closing Sellers shall not transfer or cause to be transferred to Buyer any Consent Required Contract the consent to which has not been obtained prior to the Closing Date. With respect to each such unassigned Consent Required Contract, after the Closing Date Sellers shall continue to deal with the other contracting party or parties to such Consent Required Contract as the prime contracting party and shall continue to use commercially reasonable efforts to obtain the consent of all required parties to the transfer of such Consent Required Contract to Buyer, but Buyer shall be entitled to the benefits of such Consent Required Contract accruing after the Closing Date to the extent that Sellers may provide Buyer with such benefits without violating the terms of such Consent Required Contract. To the extent permitted under such Consent Required Contract, Buyer agrees to perform at its sole expense all the obligations of Sellers to be performed under such Consent Required Contract, and to indemnify and reimburse Sellers for any cost Sellers incur in their continued performance, provided that Buyer receives the substantial benefits of such Consent Required Contract after the Closing Date.
     5.8 Public Announcements. Except as may be specifically contemplated by this Agreement or as may be required by Applicable Law, neither Buyer nor Sellers shall issue any press release or otherwise make any public statement with respect to this Agreement or the transactions contemplated hereby without the prior written consent of the other (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld).

Each party hereto agrees that, with respect to the representations and warranties of such party contained in this Agreement, such party shall supplement or amend the Disclosure Schedule as of the Closing Date with respect to any matter hereafter arising or discovered which, if existing or known at the Agreement Date, would have been required to be set forth or described in the Disclosure Schedule.

only that information contained therein on the Agreement Date and shall be deemed to exclude all information contained in any supplement or amendment thereto; provided, however, that if the Closing shall occur, then all matters disclosed pursuant to any such supplement or amendment at or prior to the Closing shall be waived and no party shall be entitled to make a claim thereon pursuant to the terms of this Agreement.
     5.13 Possession and Control of Stations; Due Diligence Contacts. Between the Agreement Date and the Closing Date, Buyer shall not directly or indirectly control, supervise or direct, or attempt to control, supervise, or direct, the business and operations of the Stations, and such operation, including complete control and supervision of all programming, shall be the sole responsibility of the Sellers. Without in any way limiting the foregoing, during such period Buyer shall not directly or indirectly (i) interfere in any material respect with the operations of any Seller’s business, including the Stations, or the relationship of such Seller with its employees, landlords, licensees, advertisers and other customers, vendors, carriage/satellite providers, (ii) cause any damage to the Stations, the Assets or any other stations or assets of such Seller, or (iii) initiate contact with or have discussions with any of the Persons listed on Schedule 5.13 concerning the Assets or the operations of such Seller without first obtaining the prior written consent of such Seller in its sole discretion, which consent may be conditioned on (among other things) the requirement that any such contact or discussions include a designated representative of such Seller who shall be present during such contact or discussions. Buyer acknowledges and agrees that a breach of the foregoing restrictions could result in significant Damages (as defined in Section 10.2 hereof) to Sellers and, therefore, a breach by Buyer thereof shall not be subject to the provisions of Section 9.5 below even if such breach results in a termination of this Agreement by Sellers under Section 9.1(d) hereof. From and after the Closing Date, Sellers shall have no control over, or right to intervene, supervise, direct or participate in, the business and operations of the Stations.

Any agreement on the part of a party hereto to any such waiver shall be valid only if set forth in an instrument in writing signed by or on behalf of such party. No failure or delay by a party hereto in exercising any right, power, or privilege hereunder shall operate as a waiver thereof nor shall any single or partial exercise thereof preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right, power or privilege.

     9.5 Deposit as Liquidated Damages. In the event that Sellers or Buyer terminate this Agreement other than a termination of this Agreement by Buyer pursuant to Section 9.1(e) hereof, then the entire amount of the Initial Deposit and, if applicable, the Extension Payment shall be retained by Sellers as non-refundable liquidated damages in full settlement of any Damages of any kind that Sellers may suffer or allege to suffer as the result thereof. It is understood and agreed that the amount of liquidated damages represents Sellers’ and Buyer’s reasonable estimate of actual Damages resulting from such termination and does not constitute a penalty. Except as otherwise provided in Section 5.13 hereof, such liquidated damages shall be the sole and exclusive remedy of Sellers against Buyer for Buyer’s breach in the event of any such termination, provided, however, that Sellers shall be entitled to recover attorneys fees pursuant to Section 5.10 as provided therein or Section 11.12 hereof.
     The parties have placed their initials below to further evidence their agreement with the foregoing liquidated damages provision.

     9.6 Specific Performance by Buyer. Sellers hereby acknowledge that the Assets are unique, and that the harm to Buyer resulting from Sellers’ failure to perform Sellers’ obligations hereunder cannot be adequately compensated by damages. Accordingly, Sellers agree that Buyer shall have the right to have all obligations, undertakings, agreements, covenants and other provisions of this Agreement specifically performed by Sellers. In any such specific performance action, Sellers agree to waive the defense that there is an adequate remedy at law for damages and agree that Buyer shall be entitled to obtain specific performance of Sellers’ obligations hereunder without having to post any bond or other security in any such proceeding.
     9.7 Certain Remedies Not Exclusive. Except as set forth in Sections 9.5 or 11.11 or elsewhere herein, the rights and remedies herein provided shall be cumulative and not exclusive of any rights or remedies provided by law. The rights and remedies of any party based upon, arising out of or otherwise in respect of any inaccuracy in or breach of any representation, warranty, covenant or agreement contained in this Agreement shall in no way be limited by the fact that the act, omission, occurrence or other state of facts upon which any claim of any such inaccuracy or breach is based may also be the subject matter of any other representation, warranty, covenant or agreement contained in this Agreement (or in any other agreement between the parties) as to which there is no inaccuracy or breach.

Table of Contents

          (a) All representations, warranties, covenants and agreements of the parties hereto contained in this Agreement or in any certificate, instrument or document delivered pursuant hereto shall survive the Closing, regardless of any investigation made by or on behalf of any party, for a period of eighteen (18) months from the Closing Date, except that (i) the representations as to title to the Assets set forth in Section 2.6 hereof shall survive forever and (ii) the representations, warranties, covenants and agreements evidenced by or otherwise contained in the Promissory Note, the Security Agreement, the Guaranty, the Advertising Opportunity Agreement and each of the agreements described in Section 8.2(f) above (collectively, the “Primary Ancillary Agreements”; provided, however, that the Promissory Note, the Security Agreement, the Guaranty and the Advertising Opportunity Agreement shall be considered part of the definition of “Primary Ancillary Agreements” if, and only if, Buyer elects to pay part of the Purchase Price by the execution and delivery of the Promissory Note as contemplated in Section 1.3(a)(iii)(A) above), as well as Buyer’s covenant and agreement under Section 11.17 below, shall survive so long as any obligations thereunder remain outstanding.
          Any right of indemnification pursuant to this Article X with respect to a claimed breach of any representation, covenant or warranty shall expire or terminate on the date of expiration or termination of the representation, covenant or warranty claimed to be breached (each a “Survival Date”). From and after the Survival Date, no party hereto or any shareholder, member, partner, director, manager, officer, or employee of such party shall be under any liability whatsoever (whether pursuant to this Article X or otherwise) with respect to any such representation or warranty, except with respect to matters as to which notice has been received in accordance with Section 10.1(b).
          (b) No party hereto shall have any indemnification obligation pursuant to this Article X or otherwise in respect of any representation or warranty unless before the Survival Date it shall have received from the party seeking indemnification prompt notice of the existence of the claim for or in respect of which indemnification is sought. Such notice shall set forth with reasonable specificity (i) the basis under this Agreement, and the facts that otherwise form the basis, of such claim, (ii) an estimate of the amount of such claim (which estimate shall not be conclusive of the final amount of such claim) and an explanation of the calculation of such estimate, including a statement of any significant assumptions employed therein, and (iii) the date on and manner in which the party delivering such notice became aware of the existence of such claim; provided, however, that any notice which the party seeking indemnification delivers to the indemnifying party prior to the Survival Date which notifies the indemnifying party of the existence of a claim and, notwithstanding the failure of such notice to meet the requirements set forth in clauses (i), (ii), and (iii) above, does not materially prejudice the indemnifying party’s ability to defend such claim, shall be deemed to have met the requirement of delivery of notice prior to the Survival Date for the purpose of preserving the indemnified party’s right to indemnification pursuant to this Article X.
          (c) The provisions of this Section shall have no effect upon any other obligation of the parties hereto under this Agreement, whether to be performed before, at or after the Closing.

     10.2 Indemnification by Sellers. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Article X, Sellers shall indemnify, defend and hold harmless Buyer, its Affiliates and each of its directors, officers, employees and agents, and their respective heirs, legal representatives, successors and assigns (collectively, the “Buyer Group”), from and against any and all claims, actions, causes of action, demands, assessments, losses, damages, liabilities, judgments, settlements, penalties, costs and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses), of any nature whatsoever (collectively, “Damages”), asserted against, resulting to, imposed upon or incurred by any member of the Buyer Group, directly or indirectly, by reason of or resulting from (collectively, “Buyer Claims”):
          (a) any inaccuracy in or breach of any representation or warranty of Sellers contained in this Agreement or in any certificate, instrument or document delivered pursuant hereto;

     10.3 Indemnification by Buyer. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Article X, Buyer shall indemnify, defend and hold harmless Sellers, their respective Affiliates, and each of their respective managers, members, officers, employees, and agents, and their respective heirs, legal representatives, successors and assigns (collectively, the “Seller Group”), from and against any and all Damages asserted against, resulting to, imposed upon, or incurred by any member of the Seller Group, directly or indirectly, by reason of or resulting from (collectively, “Seller Claims”):
          (a) any inaccuracy in or breach of any representation or warranty of Buyer contained in this Agreement or in any certificate, instrument, or document delivered pursuant hereto;
          (b) any breach by Buyer of any of its covenants or agreements contained in this Agreement or in any certificate, instrument, or document delivered pursuant hereto;
          (c) the performance or non-performance of the Assumed Liabilities after the Closing Date; and
          (d) the ownership, management, or use by Buyer of the Assets and the operation of the Stations from and after the Closing Date, except to the extent Buyer is indemnified by Sellers with respect to such matters pursuant to Section 10.2.

40.


Table of Contents

          (a) No indemnification shall be required to be made by Sellers pursuant to this Article X with respect to any Buyer Claims, unless and until the aggregate amount of Damages incurred by the Buyer Group with respect to all Buyer Claims (whether asserted, resulting, imposed or incurred before, on or after the Closing Date) exceeds $250,000 and, in such event, the Sellers shall be required to pay only the amount of such Damages in excess thereof; but in no event shall the Sellers be liable for any such Damages in excess of $22,500,000; provided, however, that the foregoing limitations shall not apply to Damages attributable to or resulting from (i) the inaccuracy of or breach of any of the representations and warranties as to title to the Assets set forth in Section 2.6 or (ii) the breach by any Seller or any of Sellers’ Affiliates of any of such party’s respective representations, warranties, covenants or agreements contained in the Primary Ancillary Agreements.
          (b) No indemnification shall be required to be made by Buyer pursuant to this Article X with respect to any Seller Claims, unless and until the aggregate amount of Damages incurred by the Seller Group with respect to all Seller Claims (whether asserted, resulting, imposed or incurred before, on or after the Closing Date) exceeds $250,000 and, in such event, the Buyer shall be required to pay only the amount of such Damages in excess thereof; but in no event shall the Buyer be liable for any such Damages in excess of $22,500,000; provided, however, that the foregoing limitations shall not apply to Damages attributable to or resulting from the breach by Buyer, Parent or any of Buyer’s or Parent’s Affiliates of any of such party’s respective representations, warranties, covenants or agreements contained in the Primary Ancillary Agreements.
          (c) The amount of Damages required to be paid by any party to indemnify any other party pursuant to this Article X as a result of any Seller Claim or any Buyer Claim shall be reduced to the extent of any amounts actually received by such other party after the Closing Date pursuant to the terms of the insurance policies (if any) covering such claim, but there shall not be taken into account any tax benefit realized directly or indirectly, by the indemnified party.
          (d) The indemnification obligations of Sellers and Buyer pursuant to this Article X shall be limited to actual damages and shall not include incidental, consequential, indirect, punitive or exemplary damages.
          (e) The indemnities herein are intended solely for the benefit of the Buyer Group, as to Sellers’ indemnities, and for the benefit of the Seller Group, as to Buyer’s indemnities, and are in no way intended to, nor shall they, constitute an agreement for the benefit of, or be enforceable by, any other Person.
          (f) The parties hereto agree to treat any indemnity payment made pursuant to this Article X as an adjustment to the Purchase Price for all Tax purposes only.
          (g) In any case where an indemnified party recovers from a third person any amount relating to a matter with respect to which an indemnifying party has indemnified the

41.


Table of Contents

indemnified party pursuant to this Article X, such indemnified party shall promptly pay over to the indemnifying party the amount so recovered, up to but not in excess of the sum of (i) any amount previously so paid by the indemnifying party to or on behalf of the indemnified party in respect of such matters and (ii) any amount expended by the indemnifying party in pursuing or defending any claim arising out of such matters. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if for any matter subject to indemnification hereunder the amount of Damages sustained by an indemnified party exceeds the amount previously paid by the indemnifying party to or on behalf of the indemnified party in respect of such matter, the indemnified party shall have the right to first retain to the extent of such excess the amount subsequently recovered from a third party in respect of such matter and the remaining portion of such amount recovered from a third party shall be paid to the indemnifying party.
          (h) Upon making any indemnification payment, the indemnifying party will, to the extent of such payment, be subrogated to the rights of the indemnified party against any third party in respect to the Damages to which the payment relates. Without limiting the generality of any other provision hereof, each of the indemnifying party and the indemnified party will duly execute upon request all instruments reasonably necessary to evidence and perfect such subrogation rights.
          (i) The indemnification provisions and procedures contained in this Article X shall constitute the sole and exclusive recourse and remedy of the parties hereto with respect to any Damages arising under Section 10.2 or Section 10.3 above.
     10.5 Procedure for Indemnification. Within 15 days after receipt by an indemnified party under Section 10.2 or 10.3 of notice of the commencement of any action, such indemnified party shall, if a claim in respect thereof is to be made against an indemnifying party under such Section, give notice to the indemnifying party of the commencement thereof, but the failure so to notify the indemnifying party shall not relieve it of any liability that it may have to any indemnified party except to the extent the indemnifying party demonstrates that the defense of such action is prejudiced thereby. In case any such action shall be brought against an indemnified party and it shall give notice to the indemnifying party of the commencement thereof, the indemnifying party shall be entitled to participate therein and, to the extent that it may wish, to assume the defense thereof with counsel reasonably satisfactory to such indemnified party. If the indemnifying party elects to assume the defense of such action, the indemnified party shall have the right to employ separate counsel at its own expense and to participate in the defense thereof. If the indemnifying party elects not to assume (or fails to assume) the defense of such action, the indemnified party shall be entitled to assume the defense of such action with counsel of its own choice, at the expense of the indemnifying party. If the action is asserted against both the indemnifying party and the indemnified party and there is a conflict of interests which renders it inappropriate for the same counsel to represent both the indemnifying party and the indemnified party, the indemnifying party shall be responsible for paying for separate counsel for the indemnified party; provided, however, that if there is more than one indemnified party, the indemnifying party shall not be responsible for paying for more than one separate firm of attorneys to represent the indemnified parties, regardless of the number of indemnified parties. If the indemnifying party elects to assume the defense of such action, (a) no

42.

compromise or settlement thereof may be effected by the indemnifying party without the indemnified party’s written consent (which shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed) unless the sole relief provided is monetary damages that are paid in full by the indemnifying party and (b) the indemnifying party shall have no liability with respect to any compromise or settlement thereof effected without its written consent (which shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed).
